Hi everyone, Josh here.

In today's video I want to explore with you how you can start taking the action towards becoming high-performing leader and engineer in the engineering industry.

Now, high performing or high performance is a bit of a buzz word at the moment. So many people are teaching it, talking about it.

Becoming a high performing engineer and leader is absolutely critical to you accelerating your career, ensuring there is work for your team and ensuring that your business and the company you work for prospers. But how do you do it? How do you become a high performing engineer?

Today, I want to give you my take or my spin on how you can start to take the action towards becoming a high performing leader and engineer. And it all starts with you playing to your unique personality style and your unique strengths.

So, in the comments below, I'll throw up a link to download a free copy of my leadership guide and that'll start to give you an idea of your unique leadership style, and your unique strengths and skill sets.

So many of us feel like we need to be somebody different. So many of us look out there at other leaders in the companies we work for or other people that we know and we feel like we need to be them. In today's video, I want to explore why you, being uniquely you and playing to your strengths is how you become a high performer.

You let go of feeling like you need to be somebody else and you double down on your strengths.

If you're really good at connecting and communicating with clients, but not so great at the details, double down on the connection and communication and get someone else in your team or your business to help you with the details.

If you're amazing at big picture thinking, big picture strategic thinking, but not so good at H.R. and not so good at the people side of things. Again, you go and you focus on the big picture strategy. You drive your team and your business forward based on your strengths. And you find a way to get support in the softer skills, the softer side of your business, because that's absolutely important, because that's what I'm passionate about too.

If you're really amazing at going into the details and running incredibly detailed reports and technical memos and those kinds of things, double down on that and find ways you can get support in other areas of your business and life, too.

If you're amazing at the people side of things, if you're amazing at making people on your team feel safe, you're amazing at making your clients feel safe and developing those really connected relationships with your clients and your team, double down on those strengths and find ways to get support in the other areas of your team and your business,

By you focusing on what you're lacking and what you're not good enough in you'll never, ever accelerate your career and become a high performing engineer and leader because you're always looking for ways that you're not good enough. Whereas right here, right now, in front of you - you have unique strengths that are unique to you and your personality type.

Again, I’ll put a link below to download my guide that'll give you some guidance on your unique personality style and your unique strengths. By doubling down on those strengths, you are giving yourself the best shot to become a high performing engineer and high performing leader because it's within you right now. It's about exploring that, bringing it out and really focusing on it.

And by focusing on you, being uniquely you, and like I say, doubling down on your strengths, you will find that people are much more readily wanting to come along the journey with you because they feel like you as a leader are stepping into your unique strengths and your unique leadership style, and that resonates with them.

So, don't worry about what everyone else is doing. Focus on you. Your unique personality style, your unique strengths double down on those skills and you'll be amazed at the results.

Love to hear your thoughts and comments below.

Have an amazing day.
